Bonjour tout le monde!
UPDATE March 14th 2018
This year, I can host only in July, maybe in August but not sure at all! I have aleady workawayers/helpers in April and May
We host for 2 weeks maybe more, depends of the work to be done.
We live, Georges, my husband and me, in Burgundy, in Bresse, in a very quiet and beautiful countryside.
My daughters (27 and 24) are not living anymore with us but visit us very often.
We are 59 and 69 years old and we are french.
In particular we would love to host anyone with any of the following skills:
- Georges needs help in the general maintenance of the garden, the horses
- help me in finishing build the veggie garden
- mowing the lawn
- house cleaning, Vacuum !!
- Cooking !! very very appreciated!! indian receipes spicy, thai, vietnam, chinese...
- one other job: brush our old dog, she will love you for ever.
Sleeping: one huge bedroom in the attic, 2 large mattress
Washing machine also available
We provide food, 3 meals, but don't ask me to cook from monday to friday as I work all week outside!
You should be able the prepare all together the meals if I am not at home!...and even I am here...
and also to tell me, if you cook ;-) , what to buy or come shopping with me!
My daughters are vegan & vegetarian so it is not a problem for us BUT I need to know how much and what to buy!!
My husband eat meat and I am between them (more veg than meat!)!....
Free unlimited internet(when the connection is good...) so you can bring your laptop
all that in exchange of 4 or 5 hours of work per day and 5 days a week( working time depends also from the weather and the work that must be done! can be less or little more ).
We enjoy having a glass of good red at dinner so you can join join us! but alway with moderation!
We have 1 very friendly old dog, 4 cats. Also 2 horses and 1 donkey. We don't ride them, they are retired!
If you are allergic to cats, horses or dust please this place is not for you!!
At the end of the work, you can, of course, stay with us and share our lives, listen music, watch TV/movies, read, have a walk with the dogs, go shopping with us, but you can also just enjoy the country, take a nap in hamock!
ALSO: you can learn french here because we can speak english only when you don't understand something ! and also because we are a lot more confortable in french!!!
THE MOST IMPORTANT IS TO BE SMILING AND...DEFINITLY...ENERGIC AND SHOW THAT YOU CAN WORK ALONE.
If you any question, please, ask me!
hope to hear about you soon!
